And she goes like a pro. Right onto the front page of one of the most trafficked liberal blogs in the country, Daily Kos, in a post by Joan McCarter.
Heckava job, Rita!
This rationale for Scott Brown as a woman-friendly candidate is just nausea-inducing.At his event, Brown was bolstered by the former mayor of Lowell, Rita Mercier, who pointed to Brown’s wife and daughters as evidence of his support for women, calling them “three adorable good woman that are strong and vibrant and independent. You don’t get that way unless you have a strong man that allowed you to blossom.”

Local level city politicians rarely get in the news like this, so you know it’s pretty special. Usually it’s at least a state Rep doing or saying something stupid that goes viral.
I would like to point out that calling Brown’s wife and daughters “adorable” is also kinda weird and condescending.
